Subject: Polarity

Some are indifferent about this show and others have ranked it (or commonly used to) as one of the best ever. But from what I recall this was also the case at the time. The reason: it's one of the "history" shows - which were eventful if you were there; the show itself is average '91. This is the end of a 4-day run (the 27th is probably the best-of-run) the week band promoter Bill Graham was killed in a copter crash. The Oakland Fires tragedy had just happened, it was Halloween, the show is long, and it has a Kesey eulogy for Graham in the Dark Star. It is sometimes noted as the best "Halloween" show, fwiw (Blair wrote a great piece about Halloween shows). There were only 7 Halloween shows after '70 - this was the last (they didn't always have the best vibes). Oddly, this was Hornsby's last west show!

First Set. Phil is on overdrive and Bruce is good - they add the best of what is otherwise an average set - particularly on the last two.

Second Set. Scarlet is just a bit bland but the dry sound on Fire is better-charged on the matrix. They barely hold on to Truckin' and give guest Gary Duncan the 2nd solo on Spoonful. His additions then uniquely color Dark Star. Eulogizing Graham, Kesey reads E.E. Cummings, going into Drums. Mickey stays for Space and big-bells-weirdness with Duncan adding different sounds back into Dark Star and The Last Time. The rest is a bit sloppy/getting tired for everyone but Jer. Bobby doesn't bother with the All Fall Down segue for Not Fade but the last-ever Werewolves of London is as good as it got, with a great Duncan solo.

1st Set:  C+
2nd Set: C+
Overall = 3 Stars

Highlights:
Dark Star>Drums>Space - Worth hearing the 41min once - if it sounds like it's in your wheelhouse
Werewolves of London - Better than the rarity was usually tossed out (albeit usually just for fun, on Halloween)

SOURCES: The finney-ghost-elborgen SBD doesn't have the clarity of the gardner.2897, and for me the hinko.32241 was slightly better. The Darby.120041 is a great AUD that was used for a great matrix (loy.30699), which adds much-needed energy in places.
